I have some huge news..... I have recently been in talks with Richardsons Cycles, a local, family-run bike shop near me.
Richardsons Cycles has been in the cycle business since 1926 and has been passed down through the generations.
Having had a meeting with them today, I am so pleased to say that they will be sponsoring me!!
Thank you SO much Richardsons Cycles, I cannot explain how much this is going to help me!
If anyone lives near Leigh-on-Sea, pop into their shop and have a look around, there is everything you need in there, and you will get a personal service from people who know their cycling stuff!
Watch this space as they have regular discounts, offers and sales, and I will be letting you all know first!
Having been training by myself for a while now, I am happy to say that I have joined Kristian Whitmarsh's triathlon team, nicknamed the Whitty's, or the Green Hands.
I met Kristian a few years ago when I was still competing in the kids triathlons. Back then, he didn't have a triathlon team, and over time we lost contact. However, after an initial meeting, Kristian and the rest of the team welcomed me into their team.
Knowing that I have a great team around me that will support each other either on our own separate journeys, or organising team training sessions (so it doesn't become boring for everyone), and who will support at each other's races even if they aren't racing themselves. It makes me feel so happy and it makes racing and training just that bit more enjoyable!
So thank you Whitty's, for welcoming me with open arms, and I look forward to being a part of a great team :)
